Technical Support

As a warehouse owner, do you need technical support? We have approved and adopted without compromise, through technical standardisation. SEMA has led on the best practice of rack safety. Many of our safety outputs are adopted nationally, across Europe and the world over.

Warehouse Safety

SEMA’s definitive work is formalised into a set of codes and guides that are certainly not just for technicians and engineers but are of direct relevance to those with a management safety role. Together with training as well as installation and use of storage equipment manufactured and supplied by our members, these “codes of honour” as we call them, provide a framework for the safe design of racking.
